Information about the .force (force) file type

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .force (force) file type.

.force
Microsoft Visual Studio file.
build.force
A file used by Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 and 2008. The file is blank and serves as a flag to Visual Studio that the project needs to be recompiled.

The file (if it exists) is located in the obj\Debug or obj\Release folder for the project. The file is automatically deleted by Visual Studio once the project has been recompiled.

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .force files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .force. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
